I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone...but they've always worked for me. - Hunter S. Thompson.

Desert Oasis

Awaiting 2 more ratings...

If I were to have my very own genie to grant me three wishes, as in days of old, I would ask for but one- let not this new-found bliss come to an end, although it is said all good things must. And even as I bask, sated in my enchanted oasis dark clouds loom on the horizon. Unpleasantries, complications ( those things that must be dealt with.) taint what joy I have gleaned while caught in a whirlwind. Yet, I have my solace and guide midst lashing grains of sand - my desert star shines brightly. And so, I grasp what positive drifts my way, salvage what I can this " shipwreck" just another episode of a bizarre life. But I do not complain only ponder my future and hope to play my cards wisely- carefully. While sometimes I think of Shakespeare's tangled web wondering, am I spider or prey?
